This paper is devoted to the study of the basic processes for the implementation of “megascience” projects and to ensure the possibility of their effective implementation using management information systems. All stages of the “megascience” project are inherent in all sorts of risks that may arise from the lack of accounting for resources and the limitations of the project. The work showed that the “megascience” project is a large and complex system, each of the stages of the project life cycle is an independent project and it can be considered as a business project, the result of which can be a commercially viable installation that has no analogues in the World, or new knowledge and technology. There is also showed the need to create an appropriate integral information management system of the “megascience” project. An approach to the creation of such a system was also proposed, and 12 sets of tasks of information systems were considered, requiring solutions for its creation.
